• the CHIC ESCAPE:

    Vietnam

    Its cool credentials were confirmed when Peter Dundas referenced Vietnam in his Emilio Pucci SS13 collection, with silhouettes inspired by traditional Ao Dai dresses. “I have friends in Vietnam who seduced me with its costumes, so I started doing research and loved it,” says Dundas. From the thrilling chaos of Ho Chi Minh City to the old-world charm of Hanoi, this is Asia at its most beguiling. Its coast is also a marvel, with two magnificent new resorts. The Six Senses Con Dao is a luxe 50-villa retreat on the south east coast, while south central Banyan Tree Lang Co Bay has interiors that echo the Pucci collection. On-trend travel, indeed. sixsenses.com; banyantree.com

    The off-duty
    update:

    KARL BOMbER

    The bomber is spring’s most covetable cover-up and Karl Lagerfeld’s sporty version is a slick take on the trend. Leather sleeves are the lo-fi way to do graphic monochrome – wear it with slouchy jeans or over a slip dress.
